Ghost Story is a hauntingly beautiful tale whose elegance, pacing and imagery make it (in my mind) the perfect ghost story. The novel centers around four elderly men who gather on a regular basis to swap ghost stories; but, we soon learn that the real ghost story was written fifty years earlier and now has set in motion deadly events. This story wraps itself around you. The tension builds slowly and gives you that spine-tingling feeling that a great ghost story should. It’s wonderful!
